GREAT Grandpa turns 102!!!

Kurts Grandpa is 102!!! He was born 07/07/07... and turned 100 on 07/07/07!!! So - we think he is one lucky guy, and we are lucky to have him in our lives.
He lived on his own just up until he turned 100, and still has a great sense of humor - and LOVES his great grandson :)
We have been trying for the past 3 years to get him on the Today show - the segment where Willard Scott wishes the centinarians (sp) a Happy Bday... MARK YOUR CALENDARS... it is FINALLY happening this year! He will be on next Wednesday July 15th between 8:30 and 9:30! It only took 102 years for his National Television debut, and he is SO excited!

Menslage East sent GGpa this awesome edible arrangement - can you see the "102" made out of pineapple?? so cool!
Liam liked the tags and cards.

His bday spread - including some "bubbly"! Arlene did a great job picking out a delicious chocolate cake that we all enjoyed. Mmmmm

Liam, you have to wait about 6 more weeks for your own bday cake!
